A glorious day and more to come, an Indian summer perhaps, badly needed from a farming perspective but less ideal racing wise and I will walk the track at lunchtime to decide whether Marlee Massie lines up in the 4.40 at Perth tomorrow afternoon; six are declared and Lucy rides. He ran very well in defeat at Cartmel last week and should progress again for the step up to 3 miles so long as the race doesn’t come too quickly.  A selection of pictures from a busy work morning here yesterday.
